welcome to "cbs this morning." the white house is under fire after a draft of its immigration plan leaked over the weekend. >> republicans are accusing the administration of meddling in bipartisan congressional plans for immigration reform to score political points. bill plante is at the white house. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. and good morning out west. the leaked white house plan does provide a path to citizenship after eight years. but white house officials say that what they really want is for senators from both parties to come up with new laws to reform immigration. they deny here that they're in any way trying to politicize the process. president obama's newly appointed chief of staff said sunday that the white house is working on a plan of its own to deal with the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the country illegally but that it hopes not to need it.
7:02 am
>> we will be prepared with our own plan if these ongoing talks between republicans and democrats up on capitol hill break down. there's no evidence they've broken down yet. we're continuing to support that. >> reporter: but the leaked document angered some congressional republicans who accuse the white house of attempting to score political points with a potent issue. >> look, the questions that we always have to ask ourselves, particularly with this white house, is the president looking for a partisan advantage, or is he looking for a bipartisan law? >> reporter: white house officials tell cbs news that is not their intent and that the plan leaked to "usa today" represents only draft options and not a final prukoduct. republican marco rubio, one of the leaders of a bipartisan group of senators working on immigration policy blasted the white house draft, calling it dead on arrival for several reasons, including the fact it doesn't address guest workers or future legal immigration policy. even if all republican concerns were covered, former house speaker newt gingrich believes
7:03 am
that any bill from the white house is doomed to fail. >> but an obama plan led and driven by obama in this atmosphere with the level of hostility towards the president and the way he goads the hostility, it's very hard to imagine that his bill is going to pass the house. >> reporter: white house officials point out the president has warned repeatedly that, if congress fails to produce an immigration bill, he will send up a bill and demand a vote. they tell us here that they are upset by this leak. they don't want it to appear that they're trying to get ahead of the senate process. they support that process. they say it's going well. they also know that an immigration bill produced by congress is the only one that's likely to pass. >> so, bill the president is spending this holiday weekend in florida. i understand he golfed with tiger woods, but the white house press corps is being denied access. >> reporter: he did golf with tiger, but we didn't get a picture of it. the white house wouldn't allow it. they don't like to show a picture of the president at
7:04 am
leisure doing anything that they see could be used as propaganda by the republicans. we of course say that we ought to see the president do whatever he does. >> bill plante thank you again. pope benedict is taking part in a vatican retreat this morning one day after speaking to the largest crowds of his papacy. allen pizzey shows us how obama is preparing for a new pope while benedict is preparing for the next stage of his life starting ten days from now. >> reporter: pope benedict has begun the traditional lenten weekend of retreat of prayer and contemplation contemplation, the sort of life he'll be leading when he goes into retirement. in his second to last appearance over st. peter's square he asked people to pray for the next pope. "a retired pope creates a host of problems that require creative solutions." benedict will eventually live inside vatican city that will allow him to keep out of the public eye and ensure security.
7:05 am
because the vatican is sovereign territory, it will also make it impossible for lawyers to sue or prosecute him from the sex abuse scandals which some have already tried to do. when a pope dies, his possessions are normally sealed and put in the vatican archives but benedict plans to keep writing. so his notes and books will probably be handed over to him. the issue of what to call a living former pope has been resolved with the title bishop emeritus of rome in which he'll be paid a salary of just over $3,000 a month. there is still no firm decision on whether church law can be altered to choose a successor earlier than 15 days after benedict leaves office. prior to the conclave the cardinals meet over several days to speak their minds and get to know each other, a crucial interim according to senior vatican communications adviser craig burke. >> some of the cardinals are known, but a lot are not. it's interesting. they get together a few times every year but it's not like they all know each other really well. it's actually a very important time.
7:06 am
>> reporter: as for benedict reports here quote his biographer german journalist as saying the last time he saw the pope, he was hard of hearing, thin, and partially blind in one eye. >> we have a correspondent for relevant radio, catholic talk radio network. she joins us now from vatican city. good morning. >> reporter: buon giorno. >> nice to hear that. what's the latest on when the conclave may start? >> reporter: that's the discussion right now. the latest is the official word we heard, that it will be at least 15 to 20 days after it's being restudied right now. it looks like there's a very good chance it might be moved up. since we know exactly when the seat of peter is going to become open and we know that the cardinals are going to be making their way to rome hopefully to be here in time for that day of
7:07 am
the 28th, then we might as well move it up a little bit and get the ball rolling. >> is there any reason not to move it up? >> reporter: one of the benefits of waiting is it gives the cardinals an opportunity to spend some time together and get to know each other better. on the other hand, in this digital age, many of the cardinals are able to communicate anyway via e-mail and to learn a lot about each other just through their writings. so although they may not know each other personally very well they could still have a pretty good idea of the other members of the conclave. >> so "the washington post" recently reported the pope's resignation may have been brought on by the vati-leaks scandal. do you think that played a role or was it his declining health? >> reporter: the official statement we received was it was his health, it was his weakness that led to his resignation. as far as the vati-leaks
7:08 am
scandals or other scanscandals we have to remember before pope benedict was elected pope he was in the vatican for 25 years even before his election. he knows the workings of the vatican. he knows how italy works pretty well. i would be really surprised if there was anything that could surprise him at this point. >> ashley, good to see you. country music star mindy mccready has been found dead in an apparent suicide. mccready burst onto the music scene when she was just 18 years old. her quick success was followed by a slow and painful unraveling unraveling. she was found sunday at her home in heber springs, arkansas. it shows a life and talent cut short. ♪ >> reporter: mindy mccready rose to country music fame in 1996 with her debut album "10,000 angels," but it was her life
7:09 am
outside the recording studio that stole the spotlight. >> you can just google and see the images that pop up. she's got several mug shots. >> reporter: on top of stints in and out of jail and rehab, the singer was plagued by a long list of other problems. eight years ago, billy mcknight, the father of her oldest son, was charged with attempting to kill her. in 2008 she made headlines again over a rumored affair with baseball pitching legend roger clemens that reportedly started in her teens. two years later, on cbs news she addressed reports that she had tried to commit suicide twice before. >> i was never in a state in which i was conscious and with it and said oh i want to die. >> reporter: sunday afternoon authorities found mccready's body on the porch of her arkansas home, dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. her death comes just weeks after david wilson, the singer's boyfriend and father of her 10-month-old son, was believed to have killed himself. >> he didn't just touch my
7:10 am
heart. he touched my soul. he was my soul mate.ccready, wilson's body was found on the same porch. >> i think that speaks to the pain she was feeling that for whatever reason she chose to go to the same location and do the same thipg he did. >> reporter: mindy mccready was 37. double amputee olympian oscar pistorius has cancelled all his future track meets. pistorius is charged with the murder of his girlfriend. we're learning new details of what happened the nice she died. kelly cobiella is in london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. pistorius will be back in court tomorrow and his lawyers will likely try to convince a judge this is all a tragic accident. prosecutors will pursue a charge of premeditated murder and police have reportedly said the case is rock solid. his father says oscar pistorius
7:11 am
acted on instinct when he shot his girlfriend thursday firing four times at a person he thought was a burglar. yet cbs news has learned that police believe reeva steenkamp slept next to pistorius that night in his bed. she was still in her nightgown. she was shot once in the bedroom, then tried to hide in the bathroom. three more shots were fired through the door hitting her as she covered her head with her hands. shock over the shooting has turned to obsession. tabloid papers are filled with unconfirmed reports and rumors -- talk of steroids alcohol, arguments, and a bloody cricket bat. police reportedly found it in the house. mandi weiner of south africa's eyewitness news has interviewed people at the scene of the shooting and says that that will be crucial to the police investigation. >> they're looking at a few scenarios we understand. the other is that she tried to injure herself. there are reports that oscar pistorius may have used it to assault her at first.
7:12 am
that's why it will be so important in this. >> reporter: his family says pistorius is in shock. they met with him over the weekend at the police station in pretoria, where he's being held. his career is in freefall. all races have been cancelled, and sponsors are considering their next move. on saturday night, the spotlight was on steenkamp. she appeared in a reality tv show taped in jamaica months ago. producers aired it despite her death. >> i love you very, very much. >> reporter: they say the family was told first and did not object. steenkamp's body is now back in her hometown on south africa's south coast, and a private funeral is planned for tomorrow. charlie, norah? >> kelly cobiella thank you. pressure is mounting on new jersey senator robert menendez the new foreign relations committee chair is fighting a growing list of allegations. many tied to a friend and campaign donor. john crawford in live. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to our
7:13 am
viewers in the west. cbs news has confirmed the fbi is looking into a number of allegations against senator menendez, including one that he solicited prostitutes while on a trip to the dominican republic. the investigation so far has not proven menendez had any interactions with prostitutes in the dominican republic. that was the initial allegation against the new jersey democrat. the miami herald dispatched a team of reporters to the country to investigate. >> trying to find someone this many months after the fact based on all of the sketchy allegations and the unclear claims it's really difficult. it's a cold trail. >> reporter: but that's only part of what's become a steady drip of allegations against menendez. the fbi and the senate ethics committee also are investigating menendez's relationship with florida doctor salmon melgen a close friend and campaign contributor. last month the fbi raided melgen's office after the doctor was accuseded of improperly
7:14 am
billing medicare $9 million. he is disputing the charges. menendez's office contacted health agencies to see if the charge could be disputed. menendez has denied being involved in any accusations. >> i have no intention of having the smears try to deviate me from the work i have been doing. >> reporter: menendez is also accused of trying to help melgen from discouraging the state department from donating security equipment to the dominican republic. melgen had a contract to provide the equipment and would have an obvious interest in not seeing the government provide it for free. >> if the fbi believes it can show that senator menendez actually traded favors in return, say, for campaign contributions or that he intentionally falsified federal documents like his financial disclosure forms, thep they could charge him with a crime. those are really high bars to meet. >> reporter: menendez says all of this is just some smear
7:15 am
campaign, as we saw in the piece, but the allegations, charlie and norah, already have had an impact. the senator's office acknowledged they already failed to pay melgen for two trips to the dominican republic on a private plane. he's since had to pay $68,500 from his personal found. a new blizzard could threaten the midwest. some areas buried up to 10 inches in snow. meteorologist mike of our station wcco is tracking the storm. >> all eyes on the pacific northwest and a storm offshore that is going to bring pretty good rain to areas from seattle down to portland and san francisco early this week. but then it turns into a potential snow maker for the midwest, a little later in the week. that strong pacific low, as it comes out of the rockies, is going to pick up gulf of mexico moisture, and it will bring a chance for severe weather to the dallas area on wednesday. rain up to st. louis and southern kansas, and then the snow zone rolling from northern

kansas up toward maybe the twin cities of minneapolis and st. paul, in that area along with high winds, 6 to 12 inches of snow is possible coming up wednesday into thursday and friday. could be near blizzard conditions in parts of nebraska later this week. >> it's time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. los angeles times says american forces are prepared to comply with limits on air strikes in afghanistan. president hamid karzai made the demand to cut down on civilian casualties. "the new york times" says the white house plans to announce a decade long project to examine the human brain. the project would explore the brain's billions of neurons and gain insight into perception and consciousness. "the washington post" says the bid for chuck hagel to become defense secretary will probably come to an up or down vote in the senate. the nomination has been held up due to questions about how the white house handled the attack in libya. senator john mccain says there's been a reasonable amount of time to have those questions

millions of americans believe a 401(k) plan is the best way to save for the future. however, some financial planners say 401(k)s don't always add up to a comfortable retirement. what? cbs contributor and analyst mellody hobson is here to help you get the most out of your account. good to see you. there was an article recently that said 401(k) plans are a
8:18 am
disaster. they actually used the "d" word. how much do you believe that? >> i don't agree with that story. i believe there's a hyperbole there but i do believe americans need to save a lot more. to understand this you need a brief history of 401(k) plans. they're about 30 years old. when they were started, they were originally thought to be supplemental. you had a pension, social security and you could supplement it with 401(k)s. of course, pension has gone away more an more social security is more shaky and 401(k)s are becoming the entire solution for a lot of people. >> where do we stand today? >> where do we stand is the average american family they make about $50,000 a year. that's the median income and the average retirement account when they retire in a 4 01 k plan is about $140,000. that sounds like a lot but let's do the math.
8:19 am
you get social security. that's about $1,230 a month if you go to the full age to retirement and you supplying meant that with this $120,000 that you have in your 401(k) plan which if you buy a 600 annuity, which all in that's about $22,500 a year in income. if you're lucky enough to have a pension, that's another $6,000. this is not enough money and hopefully that's a wakeup call for people to save a lot more. >> where do you stand on how much should you trint? i remember some people thinking i'll triblt a litcontribute a little. >> if you can put as much as possible in the beginning that compounding all those years works in your favor. every single person has some amount of money that they waste. there's leakage in our wallets, there really is. >> okay. if you could clamp down on some of that, a few dollars a week makes a huge difference over time. >> so you say maximum.
8:20 am
>> you want to contribute as much as possible but your bare minimum is to contribute enough to get the company match. don't walk away from the free money. >> and then some warnings about what you should not do especially if you're changing jobs. the average american changes jobs 11 times. i is jobs. >> 77 people say at some point they took some money out when they changed jobs. you want to protect that pension money at all costs. now, i know during the financial crisis some of us had to tap in to our retirement money but you want to make sure you roll that money over to your next 4501 k plan or an ira so you also don't lose track of it in 11 different places but that you keep it in intact intact, roll it over that you make sure as much as possible you are paying attention to how that money is invested. very, very important. >> all right. did you leave your number? mellody can be reached at -- >> if you follow these things

8:37 am
